Area Information


Desck

A once-thriving, small historical village nestled in the heart of central Kentucky, Casey Creek is situated where three counties (Adair, Casey and Taylor) join, midway between their county seats. United Country Heavenly Hollow Real Estate serves the real estate needs for Adair, Boyle, Casey, Lincoln, Russell, Marion and Taylor counties.

The beauty here is almost indescribable with the grassy bottomlands near the rivers and numerous creeks, rolling hills and ridges, which sometimes resemble small mountains, the lush hardwood tree growth and native flora and fauna delight the eye and calm the spirit. The skies appear to be bluer, the colors brighter, and the air tastes cleaner!

Life seems slower here and people kinder. Enjoy the warm sunshine, multitudes of beautiful flowers, lush green shrubs and trees, smell the sweet scent of fresh-cut hay in springtime; a hot, lazy August afternoon inundated with cheerful songbird trills; a crisp, blue-skied October morning when the trees are adorned in a splendid array of magnificent colors; or a quiet, cold January with winds brushing the soft white frost or snow ... each season has its own special gift to give the person who is willing to take a moment to be a part of this very special place!


History buffs will find this a paradise, beginning with the Ice Age to the Civil War.

Artifacts from glaciers, Native American sites, and Civil War battles allow for many delightful hours of pleasurable searching and learning.

For those who prefer festivals and local fun theme events, one may travel from town to town each weekend and never tire of the variety that is offered.

Danville's Big Brass Band Festival, the Forkland Festival with its play and bean supper, Penn's Store's Annual Outhouse Race, or Casey County's Apple Festival are but a few available each year.

Friendly, laid-back, easy-going, always ready to help...this describes the natives. Excellent school systems, hospitals, country clubs, shopping areas, restaurants, recreational facilities, and overall beauty make central Kentucky a wonderful place to live.

Several colleges and universities (Centre in Boyle County; Campbellsville University in Taylor County; Lindsey Wilson in Adair County; University of Kentucky Extension in Danville) provide opportunities for higher education and possible employment.

Most industry is agricultural, with cattle, horse and dairy farming being most popular. The proximity to Lexington with its concentration of horse breeding and racing is a definite plus for the horse person. Tobacco, wheat, oats, corn & barley top the list for money crops. The long growing season, abundance of water, and good soil make this area perfect for the farmer, large or small.

The topography, consisting of bottomland near creeks and rivers, knolls (as the natives call the rolling hills), and the higher ridges give the terrain a constantly changing ambiance for beauty, seclusion and versatility.


Medical facilities, universities, colleges and recreational lakes provide many opportunities for employment.

Located in the northern area are several light industrial manufacturers for those who prefer an indoor profession.

The proximity to larger cities (Lexington/Louisville) give the residents opportunities to be a part of city life on a day-trip basis, returning to the peaceful countryside after enjoying shopping, horse races (Keeneland and Churchill Downs), plays, many theme festivals held each year, or just browsing around.

Streams gently flowing along their limestone bottoms, spring-fed ponds, emerald blue lakes, lush shrubs and flowers, stately hardwood trees, dark green pastures, gently rolling hills, everything that makes this area one of the most beautiful in all of Kentucky also contribute to its great recreational potential.

The Green River Lake and Lake Cumberland are within a 20-mile radius of the area, providing camping, hiking, fishing, boating and relaxing. For the hunters' delight, deer, squirrel, rabbits and doves abound in the many private and public hunting areas.

One of the area's most important amenities is its versatility. It can be a place to get away from everything on a remote, secluded property miles from civilization or a lovely home in or near the small towns where one can join in the activities of the civic and social functions that abound here. YOU HAVE THE CHOICE!
